Muscle can't replace fat so quickly. :) It takes months or years to build muscle to the point it affects the scale... not weeks!
However, exercise can affect the scale, stopping weight loss or even causing you to gain a little weight, when you first start an exercise program, or increase the intensity of one. This is normal, healthy, and temporary!

It can take as much as 6-8 weeks for healthy lifestyle changes to show up on the scale, especially when exercise is involved. That doesn't mean you're not losing fat, or making big changes in your body! You do need to make sure your fitness goals reflect the amount of exercise you're doing. You can update your fitness settings on your fitness tracker at any time.
